"Nasty Patty" is an episode from Season 3.





A health inspector shows up at the Krusty Krab, and while he is there, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs see the news about a guy passing himself off as a health inspector to get free food. Mr. Krabs is so mad he and SpongeBob make a Krabby Patty made with a bunch of nasty things. After it is served to the inspector he chokes on a fly and the two think he died from the patty. They later find out that he was a real health inspector. They bury him, and are picked up by police. It is raining, and the mud on the hill erodes - the body is exposed. SpongeBob brings it into the freezer, and leaves it there. Officer Nancy wants ice for her drink, and she is about to go into the freezer when they confess their crimes. She opens the door, and there is nothing there. She thinks it's a joke, and closes the door. The health inspector comes up from behind, but the police think he's a zombie. After figuring out that he is not, in fact, a zombie, the health inspector shows Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob the sheet, and it turns out that the Krusty Krab passed the test for the health inspection. Mr. Krabs treats Nancy, the other officer and SpongeBob to discounted Krabby Patties to celebrate. The Health Inspector is about to come out but the door slams on his head.
